**a.** Assuming that the desired rate of return is
15%, determine the net present value for the proposal. Use the
table of the present value of $1 presented above. If required,
round to the nearest dollar.

Present value of net cash flow | $ |

Less amount to be invested | $ |

Net present value | $ |

**b.** Would management be likely to look with
favor on the proposal?

The net present value indicates that the return on the proposal
is (**choose one:** greater, less) than the minimum
desired rate of return of 15%.

Answer #1

a. Desired rate of return =15%

Calculation of present values of the cash inflows :

Yr1 - 72000*.870 = $62640

Yr2 - 55000*.756 = $41580

Yr 3- 42000*.658 = $27636

Yr 4 - 28000*.572 = $16016

Total = $147872

Amount invested = $121300

Net present value = $26572

b. Yes the management is likely to look with favor on the proposal since the NPV is positive , which means that the return on the proposal is higher than the minimum desired rate of 15%

Looking forward to your upvote. Thanks!!
